Chirico’s Corner With ’16 CB Austin Andrews


austin andrewsCurrently with twenty two offers, cornerback Austin Andrews has seen a spike in his recruiting process, receiving five offers in a little over two months. Per 247Sports, Andrews is a three-star, the 67th cornerback in his class, and the 27th prospect out of Ohio, coming from Columbus. After going to a couple of camps last year, Andrews received his first offer from Ohio University.

Andrews now holds offers from some top tier programs such as Michigan State, Wisconsin, Boston College, and Missouri. He also holds offers from Toledo, Purdue, Pittsburgh, Ohio, Louisville, Kent State, Iowa, and Indiana. After visiting Ohio State multiple times, Andrews is still hoping for an offer from Ohio State. Overall, Andrews has been keeping busy with his recruiting process between visits and receiving offers. “It’s good, a lot of school coming into visit and calling on the phone, a lot of fun.” Andrews said. “Michigan State has been there since day one. Wisconsin has been showing a lot of love. Louisville, Boston College, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Iowa, and Ohio State have been in contact pretty frequently.”

His top four schools include three from the Big Ten, including Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Missouri. With no offer from the Buckeyes, Andrews still has been in contact with the staff. He has visit Ohio State for camp, and a handful of visits. Most recently, visiting for the spring game. “I have been up a lot, I live around five minutes away from campus.” Andrews said. He explained his last short trip over to Ohio State as “It was pretty cool, super hot with a bunch of people there.”

Coming off that last visit, Andrews has been happy with that the coaches have been telling him, but the local cornerback is still an offer shy from wearing a Buckeye uniform. “Iv’e heard pretty much everything I want to hear, without an offer. They want me like the way I play and stuff, but they are coming to visit my school to see me run and move around around, I believe next week. So we will see.” Andrews said.

Lookout for an Ohio State offer coming his way. Some top 2016 cornerbacks Ohio State has already offered include Damar Hamlin, Jared Mayden, Joejuan Williams, and Travyon Mullen. The chances Andrews makes this list is high, and if he were to get an offer, there would be a good chance we could see him playing as a Buckeye.
